Whether you’re new to New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe or a dab hand with the Wii U release and eager to acquaint yourself with the Switch release, there are still 10 fantastic 10 power-ups to use in the game and with this guide, we’re going to introduce you to them:


*All power-up information & imagery comes from Nintendo


New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe guide
Super Mushroom:

Get a little size boost and the ability to withstand one attack from an oncoming baddie. You can also bust blocks when you’re bigger.

Mini Mushroom:

This mushroom lets you squeeze into tiny Warp Pipes and run across water. You can even dash straight up walls!

Propeller Mushroom:

Hover like a little helicopter with this power-up.

*NEW! Super Crown:

When Toadette finds one of these, she can transform into the super=powered Peachette. (Sorry Luigi—only Toadette can use this item!)

Super Acorn:

This power-up will make you look like a flying squirrel—and glide like one, too!

Super Mario Bros power-ups

A rare variety of the Super Acorn that gives unlimited flight ability through a whole course (or at least until an enemy hits you).

Fire Flower:

These red-hot flowers grant you the ability to throw fireballs.

Ice Flower:

This power-packed power-up lets you toss ice balls to freeze enemies in their tracks.

Penguin Suit:

This special suit gives you the powers of the Ice Flower along with better traction on ice, faster swimming, and the ability to slide on your belly.


Super Star:


Become completely invulnerable to enemy attacks and zoom through courses with ease.

As always, we hope you found this introductory guide helpful. More Mario guides can be found here!
